AR grip storage cap

Well this is nothing new or extraordinary, but recently it occurred to me that the space in my AR grip could be used. I looked online and found grip versions that had this feature built in, but I really like the Hogue grip I put on mine and figured I could make something that would work. So very simply I just cut and shaped some 3mm aluminum to fit snug into the inner lip of the Hogue, and used nylon boot strap for the pull. Works great! Inside I keep 3 rounds ammo, spare gas rings, spare ejector, spare ejector spring, and a mini punch tool I made out of a piece of welding rod. Still have a little room left, I'll put a couple other things in later. Just thought I'd share this as a cheapo but functional feature.

    Nice work! I have a Magpul MIAD grip that stores a small bottle of lube in that space...

    Only thing we put in the grip was our Zero written on tape in the Army and I believe they quit doing that in later years.

    Nice. I keep tax stamp copies in my grips for suppressors, too.

    Yeah, those sugar free ones will make you 'flow free' on the exhaust port if you eat too many of them, and not having enough gas to 'cycle the action' is also not a problem. :rotflmao:

    I may or may not have a 5# bag in my office.

    I prefer M&Ms, chocolate originals. I buy the 2 pound bag.
